INTAKT is a state-of-the-art sample specifically designed for rhythmic loop playback, manipulation and more. Its one-screen interface features numerous sound-shaping abilities without disrupting the creative flow. Using multiple algorithms, INTAKT automatically syncs to tempo, while an expansive library of loops from Zero-G and East West provides numerous source material for any musical style. Sound-shaping options include a multimode filter, an envelope follower, two LFOs, effects and more.

INTAKT features three sample playback algorithms to ensure maximum sound quality for a variety of source material.

Using an advanced peak-detection algorithm, the Beat Machine divides the imported audio into individual hits. Each hit can have individual settings for pitch, playback direction, pitch envelope, amp envelope, distortion, delay and more. A MIDI file can be easily exported so that groove, accent and feel can be manipulated in any host sequencer. The Beat Machine can directly open REX files that already contain marker information.

The Time Machine time-stretches or compresses the sound in real time. By first analyzing the sound source, the Time Machine can dynamically adapt itself to a wide variety of source sounds, from sustained vocals to polyphonic percussion.

Not only does INTAKT sync, stretch and pitch, but it filters, effects and modules. INTAKT also hosts a powerful sound-shaping filter, flexible envelopes, synchable LFOs, distortion, synchable delay and lo-fi effects.

Though INTAKT ships with numerous loops, it also imports .WAV, .AIFF, REX1 and REX2 files, Gigasampler, Akai, HALion, EXS, BATTERY and KONTAKT instruments.

Other features include 32-bit processing, 96kHz sample rate support; three sample modes (Beat Machine with ISE, or Individual Slide Edit; Tim Machine and Sampler mode); supports direct-from-disk playback; integrated effects, including lowpass, highpass, band-reject or bandpass modes, global filter); and Total Recall.

Supported interfaces include VST 2.0, MAS, DXi, ASIO, Soundmanager, FreeMIDI, OMS, Audio Units, Core Audio and RTAS. Minimum system requirements include Windows XP/2000/ME/98, Pentium III/Athlon 400 MHz, 256MB RAM, Mac OS 9.2 or higher, G3 500MHz, 256MB RAM.

INTAKT will be available at the end of the second quarter of 2003 and comes with a SRP of $199.
